"If you can't understand my silence, then you don't deserve my words."
"Love is like the wind, you can't always see it, but you can feel it."
"Sometimes all you need is ten seconds of insane courage."

In two seconds time, a chance was lost
Two people in love, their paths uncrossed
Both of them yearning to reveal
The emotions they will always feel

In two seconds time, their fate was twisted
Now in the book of lost loves, they are listed
Both suffering from the wrath of fate
The destruction of love, only she can create

In two seconds time, their future was destroyed
Oh, why was it theirs that fate had toyed?
Both now cursed to love from afar
Fate had left a very permanent scar

The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by two people I know, that are both in love with the other, but still chose to remain silent. I told them that they had to act now, before fate decided to intervene, and she is not always pleasant. Thankfully they had a happier ending than the couple in my poem.
